Woodlice photo perspectives
Examples of useful photo perspectives for ID when shooting woodlice.
Always make sure you get a good view on the structure of head and tail(!)
But of course other things are often useful too, such as:
- Good views on head and and tail! (or am I repeating myself? ;o)
- Colouration and surface sculpture (granulation etc.) of the whole animal
- Ability to roll into a ball or not
- A view on the ventral face of the pleon (hind body) to see the number of visible pseudotracheae
- Shape and segmentation of the antenna and its flagellum
- The shape of the hind corner of the first pereonite (1st. dorsal plate)
That last point, combined with body outline at the pereon-pleon junction is also depicted here:
